Jeff J. and I again spent the day at InfoAge.
- We bought four more shelving units and more boxes. We put all of the library and for-sale books into boxes. The for-sale books are only about 75% organized but that is good enough for now, because you guys will probably tear through them at Festivus anyhow. :)
- We really, really, really want to move as many books at Festivua as possible -- so exclusively for MARCHins the price will be 50 cents per book, $1 minimum, rounded down if you buy an odd number of books. (At the VCF we will return to $1/pound.)
- We had a visitor for Rutgers' Laboratory for Computer Science. He enjoyed the comprehensive tour and promised to return with students.
- While I played tour guide, Jeff did warehouse stuff including the very undesirable task of sweeping floors. We have plenty of more dust to (ahem) "organize" but we had to start somewhere.
- We went to Home Depot and bought 10 tarps of 10x25 ft. each. We covered nearly everything in our warehouse becauase the tarp above the roof was mostly blown off in last week's storm. There are only one or two small leaks on the side of the building where our stuff sits, so the tarps are just a preventive measure. The bad leaks are on the empty side of the building.
- But there is good news! Fred told me the town council will consider the new roofing bids at their December 11 meeting. If things go the normal way, then they'll accept one of the bids, sign a contract with the winner, and work can begin.
- We also spent some time playing artifact Tetris with the 10% of our storage area that remains unsorted and/or on pallets. We sorted some of it and created an aisle, so now it's easier and safer to reach the rest.
